United welcomed Continental Airlines to the Star Alliance
With Continental’s membership in the Star Alliance, United customers are eligible to earn and redeem Mileage Plus miles throughout Continental’s network, which includes more than 60 cities not currently served by United or another Star Alliance member. The two airlines – like all members of the Star Alliance – recognize elite-level frequent flier benefits reciprocally and provide access to the worldwide network of lounges operated by the Star Alliance airlines.

The Luby-Jenkins School-Pairing Program has created important relationships between two Mongolian and two American high schools, which include annual exchange of visits and extensive year-round curricular and extracurricular activities. One of the American high schools is located in the Navajo Nation. The program is named in honor of the late Nancy Luby, the much-loved former chair of the UB-Denver Sister Cities Commitee, and Walt Jenkins, President of the Zorig Foundation USA, who founded the program. The Khan Bank of Mongolia has been a key supporter from its inception.
The Gala Dinner on October 16 includes a V.I.P. reception, special tours of the exhibit and a highly entertaining party with live music, performances, and a special Wrestling Showcase featuring Mongolian wrestlers, NAMBC Vice Chairman and Honorary Consul of Mongolia Jim Wagenlander and other muscular local citizens in matches to be refereed with impeccable fairness by Colorado political leaders.
Attending both the dinner and the Khuraldai will be a Mongolian official delegation including Mongolian Ambassador to the US Kh. Bekhbat and other senior Mongolian government officials. The dinner is underwritten by generous support from Peabody Energy, the Mongolian Energy Corporation, Hysen Inc., the Kohn Family Foundation and others.
